Waiting for Spring

At this point, I think we are all ready for
springtime and fresh new flowers
We have warmed up nicely and even enjoyed a day reaching 82 degrees.
My rose garden is still a ways from sharing pretty blooms
but I know they are coming soon.
In the meantime,
I have brought a little spring inside
while we wait.
*********
It is better to be patient then
powerful; it is better to have self-control
then to conquer a city.
Proverbs 16:32



Roses, although silk, are a hope for spring.

There is beauty in the color pink.




We can make our plans, but the Lord
determines our steps.
Proverbs 16:9



There is a time for everything,
a season for every activity
under heaven.
A time to cry and a time to laugh.
Ecclesiastes 3:1,4



Teach us to make the most of our time,
so that we may grow in wisdom.
Psalm 90:12




Home is where the heart dwells
and makes a nest for comfort.




The birds in my yard are beginning to sing
the songs of springtime.




Wishing you a wonderful weekend
and warm spring days soon.

Thanks for stopping by.

Blessings
Celestina Marie

What a beautiful post and wonderful verses, Celestina! Your painted roses are gorgeous, love them! I hope the cold temps that you had earlier haven't been hard on all of your roses and other plants. I too am looking forward to spring and spending time tending my gardens. Have a great day! Oh, I almost forgot to mention that your dove and flower are just gorgeous!!

What an uplifting post!
We have nothing close to 80s and are grateful for 50s here. I was just looking at the hydrangea by the back door and noticed a few green leaves popping. Spring will be here before we know it.

Bless you, sweet Celeste! Lovely post with snaps and Bible verses! I didn't know you played the piano. We should play a duet sometimes.:)
Be a sweetie and hope you've had a nice weekend.

The picture with the white flowers and the butterfly is so pretty. And your angel is just precious. She would make me happy looking at her every day. :~)

The days are getting warmer here, but it's supposed to rain again this week, so winter is not over yet in my neck of the woods.

Love,
